(The harmonies are a tad "crisp" in my speakers).

Cool. Very catchy.

Floyd,
For this song I used the harmonizer from BIAB (I can't sing that high.) I used the 1 down and 2 up and took bits and pieces from each for the harmony line. I also changed some of the harmony notes to the way I wanted them by using Meladyne.

Some really COOL lines in the lyrics, such as "Don’t need candied promises to break your disguise" "I need the silence to watch the whispers creep". Movin, upbeat melody, nice vocals. You ROCK!!!

Hi Scott,

Your vibe's driving 'sense of purpose' really appealed to me. The sound that I'm hearing is crisp and very, very professional. The arrangement sparkles, your singing is excellent and sits really well in the mix, and the production is first rate.

Really well done!

All the best,
Noel

Cool song!! Nice, gritty rocker. Mix sounds really good to me....an in your face sound which matches the sentiment of the song. Organ sounds particularly great. Nice job!! Take care. Greg

Nice one.
I don't know about Reaper. Does it have eq filters? Maybe could use it to clear up some of the low end muddiness.
Good melody.

This has a big beat and plenty of enthusiasm to sell the message.
Oddly enough the enthusiasm seems to have translated into a lot of sibilant sounds - unusual for you - perhaps it's some vocal treatment that's creating it.
Terrific song.

Band-in-a-Box® File Associations

Ear Training Games in Band-in-a-Box® for Windows

October 1, 2021 is National Kids Music Day!

Head to the Practice Window in Band-in-a-Box® for Windows, and you'll see fun games that are fun ear training options for kids: Music Replay & Pitch Invasion.

Of course, you don't have to be a kid to like these games, I think there a fun way to learn at any age!

Music Replay is just what it sounds like - the program plays a 1-bar melody, and the user plays it back. Get it right, and you'll keep building that melody (and skill) within the game - get it wrong, and you'll be met with a warning tone and have to try again... it's quite addictive, and a lot of fun!

If you like a classic arcade game, then you'll love Pitch Invasion! We've managed to incorporate aliens with pitch-recognition skills in this exciting game, where you'll match the pitch of the alien ship descending towards your planet trying to destroy your collection of instruments - match the pitch and you've saved your instruments, make a mistake and the ship keeps coming... you'll have a few tries to get it right, if you're quick, but if all your instruments are destroyed - it's game over! The game speeds up as your skills improve, and you'll earn points along the way, with bonus points available throughout the game.

Open up your Band-in-a-Box® for Windows today to give it a try!

These ear training games are also included in Musical Arcade for Windows.
